about action. tipping point?he >> this is an outrage. we are killing each other. we are the only industrialized country in the world of doing it. to >> at least nine afghan girls are killed by a landmine while collecting firewood. it raises questions about these weapons of war. >> welcome to this special edition of "bbc world news america." this community is warning the loss of 26 people including 20 children killed in a school on friday. it has ignited a debate about gun control in america. today was about the children, i got little noah and little jack pinto, to six girls who were buried today. it should a community struggling with grief and with shock. we have the latest. >> the agony of this week town was almost unbearable. first jack pinto was also buried. the town will hold the funerals of 80 more small victims of horrific violence. the parents of one of them have been speaking of their desperation as they waited outside the school on friday. >> i know exactly what she was wearing. i was going to see her black the glittery uggs should put on this morning. >> there was still
through their political action committees and republican control of congress, they can't cut entitlements now. when they do eventually become a problem that will require some immediate action, they know that it will involve higher revenues. and the higher revenues are going to be on them. if you check any poll, you find overwhelming support for raising taxes on people making more than $250,000 and raising taxes on corporations. and so i think they're trying to fend that off. bill moyers: obama campaigned on higher rates. and he won. why can't republicans come to terms with that that's how the election came out? yves smith: the republicans have become very dedicated to the idea that taxes in any form are bad. that when, in fact, there are times when taxes can fund productive investments and actually, again, lead to more economic growth. but it's the republicans and ironically, wall street, have basically adopted the same strategy of being non-negotiable. that if they have a blocking position, and they feel that they have a blocking position by virtue of their majority in the house, that th
of that 40 minutes. that somehow when it comes to action, you par. extraordinary. >> well thank you very very much. that was a very logistically challenging sequence to shoot, but fascinating. i mean obviously. >> rose: why fascinating. >> why fascinating. because just learning about the methodology how the special forces operate. for instance you know the way they move, there's a kind of methodical nature to the way they move, very careful, very considered. and having to shoot in a quote/unquote low light condition because it was meant to be a moonless night. so we were shooting, we decided, we opted for a digital format in order to do that. we also used real night vision lenses that we put on to the lens themselves. so then we had to go into of no light conditions so that those lenses would operate, they would operate, you know, to the best of their ability. so that was basically we had to figure out all the logistics, all the choreography. we built that compound from the ground up, and it had to be built with a really pretty serious foundation because of the black helicopters and the roto
to wait and see is some sort of action so if we don't see an agreement between the two leaders in the senate, i expect a bill to go on the floor. and i've asked senator reid to do this, put a bill on the floor that makes sure that taxes on middle-class families don't go up. that unemployment insurance is still available for 2 million people, and that lays the groundwork then for additional deficit reduction and economic growth steps that we can take in the new year. >> all of this still developing. and we will have more on all of it with mark shields and david brooks later in the program. >> also ahead >> warner: also ahead, between now and then; protesting a gang rape in india; mass producing high quality education and remembering general norman schwarzkopf. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: the u.s. economy has dodged a potentially crippling strike at ports up and down the east coast and gulf coast at least, for now. the longshoremen's union agreed today to extend its existing contract by another month. that word came after the union and sh
to the epidemic of gun violence in our country. if this moment passes in to memory without action from washington, it will be a stain upon our nation's commitment to protecting the innocence innocent including our children. >> rose: i'm pleased to have mayor bloomberg back at this table. >> thank you for having me. >> rose: on "meet the press" yesterday, at a press conference today you believe that the time is now, that this is the moment to act, and at the same time you are chastising the president for-- i believe the time was a long time ago, the president gave a speech after the massacre in a-- aurora, colorado, saying we have to do something. here we are two years later, another 21,000 people in america killed with guns. we've done nothing. i mean, you know, i don't know at what point you have to say enough is enough. we've been killing 34 americans every single day. that's bigger than virginia tech. every single day. and you done cover it because it's 34 separate occurrences around the country. and it doesn't grab the public's imagination, psyche, sympathy, there's just-- you don't get a vis
what is the right size of the industry. >> reporter: still, economists say citi's action today is not the start of a new ve aofls crfe america. the nation's job market may not be robust, but it's not frozen, either. in fact, today, the payroll firm a.d.p. reported 118,000 new private sector jobs were added in november, fewer than in october. the blame for last month's slowdown in hiring falls squarely on hurricane sandy, not on any new or widespread weakness in the economy. >> i would expect that by december, we're going to see some bounce back. much of the disruption from sandy was people simply not being able to get to work or firms not employing people that they ordinarily would have. >> reporter: friday, the government will report it's monthly snapshot of the u.s. labor market. it, too, is likely to reflect temporary effects related to the aftermath of hurricane sandy. >> we're looking for only a 50,000 gain in jobs in november, well under that 170,000 average we've seen over the past three months. >> reporter: hurricane sandy's effects on hiring may be short- lived, but ex
to show rebel fighters in the streets of the yarmouk camp. the rebel action began friday in an effort to drive out a pro- government palestinian faction. the chief foreign correspondent for nbc news, richard engel, has escaped from kidnappers in northern syria. he and his crew said they were dragged from their car on thursday by gunman supporting the assad regime. they escaped last night when their captors became engaged in a firefight with rebel forces. engel spoke in turkey today, flanked by two of his crew. we're very happy to be out. we're very happy to be back in turkey. we love being here. we love this country. we appreciate all the help. the last five days are days that we would rather forget. if you can understand, we just came out now. we haven't even left yet. we're very tired. >> holman: engel said he and his colleagues were kept bound and blindfolded, and subjected to mock executions. it was unclear whether all of the crew members escaped. five people working with a u.n. polio vaccination campaign in pakistan were shot to death today, possibly as part of a taliban campaign
demanding action. >> last night the president said he would use whatever powers his office holds to address this violence. i think it is critical that he do so. words alone cannot heal our nation. only action can do that. gun violence is a national idemic and a national tragedy that demands more than words. >> suarez: the mayor urged congress to reinstate a ban on assault-style weapons like the bushmaster a.r.15 rifle that adam lanza used friday. versionof thatv gun were outlawed in 1994 but the ban expired in 2004. a new poll out today from abc and the "washington post" found 54% of americans support stricter gun laws in general. still 71% oppose banning the sale of handguns. and in addition to gun control, there are new appeals to identify and help treat potentially troubled individuals before there's a tragedy. connecticut governor dan maloy spoke this afternoon in hartford. >> are we doing enough from a meantal health perspective to reach out to kids and families who are obviously in trouble? my sense is we are not. and we need to look at that within our own state and within our own nat
age makes me feel good on film, like we are not forgotten. >> liam neeson is flourishing as an action star at the age of 60, maintaining that older people have been underserved by hollywood. >> they're making movies for 15- year-old up to 25-year-olds. >> studios maintain that older people figure into their calculations. >> older audiences are avid moviegoers, they grew up with the habit, and they like to go to theaters, so they are an important part. >> the supply of movies catering to older people will continue, partly because the moviegoing audience appears to be getting older. last year in the u.s., the number of teenagers going to the cinema declined, while admissions among older people increased. the statistics may reflect the 78-strong baby boom generation have been more time to go to the movies more often. and films resonating with older audiences are winning awards. this film took home the top prize at the cannes film festival, and just last week admitted on to the preliminary short list for best foreign that movie oscar. >> more news on the website, bbc.com/news. >> make see
on that massive class action settlement. the lawsuit was brought by car owners who lost value on their cars because of sudden, unintended acceleration problems. toyota shares fell 0.5% to just above $92 per share. apple says it will withdraw cpas tentimlaagainst a new samsung phone after the company said it will not sell the phone in the u.s. but apple shares still sold off, down more than $5 to $509. barnes and noble says british media company pearson is making a $90 million investment in its nook media unit. that's about a 5% stake. back in april, microsoft made a $300 million investment in the unit.im looking at the players: shares of barnes and noble jumped more than 4% to almost $15 a share. pearson slipped a fraction. and microsoft lost 1.5%. wal-mart plans to start monitoring the warehouses of subcontractors it uses here in the u.s. the program stems from complaints of poor worker treatment at the warehouses. shares of wal-mart fell slightly closing at $67.61. some turbulence in merger talks between american airlines and u.s. airways. the two pilot unions face obstacles on contract t
state. >> we're going to have to take more meaningful action to prevent more acts like this regardless of the politics. gwen: how evolved is he now, michael? >> well, you know, getting re-elected changes every president. barack obama will be changed by his election as well the question is whether for good or if ill? when you get re-elected, you come back. you've been reaffirmed. the public loves you even by three points an you start dreaming big. you don't have to worry about the polls. it's clear obama wants to go in that direction. he's talking about this big -- doing a fiscal solution whether now or later some time this year. he's talking about immigration reform. has another set of agenda items. let's think about this for the state of the union. you can hear in his voice some different things already. he's drawing firmer red lines. in public, even tonight when he talked, there's a little more steel, a little more firmness than what he said. zpwoin that because he has this mandate he talks about. he said his mandate wasn't his mandate. it was the american people. he also said in the
." and the romans send a vicious police action out there and kill everybody. j when that kind of police action is perpetrated against what we might consider harmless fanatics, the romans are really giving us a very good historical lesson in... in how domination works. >> all the time that jesus is talking, i cannot not imagine the fact that he's going to be put to death. everything that he is doing is politically dangerous. if you are following jesus' life from day to day, you should be saying to yourself, "somebody is going to kill this man." >> ( dramatized ): after he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to jerusalem. >> moving to jerusalem, jesus was moving from the territory ruled by herod antipas, to the territory ruled directly by rome through a prefect, pontius pilate. >> pontius pilate was the governor from 26 to 36, and so that places us very clearly within the early period of roman rule. these are some of our most important and clearest dates for the activities of jesus' life. when jesus actually died we're not absolutely sure. some people would say as early as maybe 27, maybe
being spritzed with a plant mister. you take the action and the inside. there is no thought that is going to set you free. it will be a spirit of waking back up and going, wow. tavis: i love it. it simplifies what so many of us struggle with, just trying to find a way to have a prayer life. i have decided, after talking to you so many times over the years, it is best to go right to your work. you write so powerfully and beautifully. from the help section, "there is freedom in hitting bottom, in seeing that you won't be able to save for rescue your daughter, her spouse, his parents, or your career, relief in admitting you reached a place of great on knowing. this is a restoration can begin a because when you're still in the state of fixing the unfixable, everything that is engaged." >> it is so abusive to try to do that, too. everyone is on their heroes journey, but people don't need to be saved a rescue, especially by a tired grandmother trying to nag them and to be saving a different way. -- into behaving a different way. when someone has screwed up or come up empty, they a
, covering this for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. there is often a back lash of people who think it is going too fast so the supreme court may put the brakes on it. i think this year showed in very stark relief that this issue is moving much faster and much clearer. in a much clearer direction than i think it has. >> excuse me. i was going to say it is a really tough issue for the religious community in particular. you have very different opinions within the religious community. some of the strongest opposition to this is coming from evangelicals, roman catholics. obviously at the grassroots, people are divided. younger evangelicals tend to be more tolerance of it. you have strong opposition who see it as an issue of faith. a moral issue. biblically mandated. that makesett tough. there are religious groups who call it an equality issue and support gay marriage as a matter of justice and equality. a lot of arguments happening within congregations as well. >> i think the most important political event on the gay rights issue seemed to have nothing to do with pol
are our children. and we're going have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics. this evening michelle and i will do what i know every parent in america will do, which is have our hold our children a little tighter and we'll tell them that we love them. and we'll remind each other how deeply we love one another but there are families in connecticut who cannot do that tonight. and they need all of us right now. in the hard days to come that community needs us to be at our best as americans, and i will do everything in my power as president to help. because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need, to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, and that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memory-- memories but also in ours. may god bless the memory of the victims. and in the words of scripture, heal the broken hearted, and bind up their wounds. >> rose: flags at the white house and the capitol are f
rid of political action committee money, political party money, labor union money, corporate money. you know, i would go down to small amounts that are instantly reported, all transparent. i think we have to do that, because it is this money pouring in -- what comes out at the end is not representative of what the american people want. you know, the system gets skewed by these super influences, you know, whether it's the president pacs and the democratic's party pacs and the super pacs or the republican party super pacs, that's got to change. >> well, no ideas can make it as long as we're in the grip of an undemocratic process which determines who's going to make those decisions. >> one of the lines in my book is that all i'm trying to do here is put democracy back into our democracy. what our founders did that was exceptional was they decided, "we are not going to be subjects. we're going to be citizens. so, instead of the government telling us what to do, we'll tell the government what to do." and that only works if the people themselves have the power to decide who's going to be
and at the same time, you know, retain the name of action. you can keep doing things and be decisive. being thoughtful is not antithetical to being decisive. >> there was a scene that i knew immediately when we saw the movie i had to ask you about. lincoln walks from the white house to the telegraph center where he went regularly to receive messages from his generals and his reports from the battlefield. and he's sitting there almost as if he's talking to the two telegraph operators, but it's really a soliloquy in which he talks about euclid. >> euclid's first common notion is this: 'things which are equal to the same thing are equal to each other.' that's a rule of mathematical reasoning. it's true because it works. has done and always will do. in his book, euclid says this is self-evident. you see, there it is. even in that 2,000 year old book of mechanical law, it is a self- evident truth that things which are equal to the same thing are equal to each other." >> what led you to include that scene? >> i was fascinated to read that when he was already grown, lincoln, you know, we have a li
the debt ceiling without congressional action. house republicans reject that idea. and they've called for raising revenue without rate hikes, plus major savings in entitlement programs. the president argued today a partial deal is possible on taxes, if the g.o.p. will agree to raise rates on the top 2%. >> and if we can get the leadership on the republican side to take that framework, to acknowledge that reality, then the numbers actually aren't that far apart. another way of putting this is, we can probably solve this in about a week. >> reporter: despite issuing a warning to congressional republicans, the president also expressed optimism that some gop lawmakers may be warming to the idea of allowing taxes on the wealthy to rise. but here at the capitol today, congressional republican leaders said the president should focus less on tax increases and more on spending cuts >> we put an offer on the table. now he has out of hand rejected that. where are the specifics? where are the discussions? nothing is going on. meanwhile the people of this country are the ones that suffer. >> repor
action to prevent that from happening. but the other side of the story is that what morsi is now doing is forcing a popular vote which undoubtedly would approve this draft constitution and then there will be parliamentary elections but it will be difficult to amend the constitution in the future. that takes two-thirds of the parliament and non-islamists know they're not going to have that. >> warner: how do you interpret his televised speech tonight? we don't have all the words, he read them in arabic but was he extending any olive branch by saying "let's have a dialogue starting saturday" or is he taking a hard line? >> i watched morsi's speech and he offered a very small crumb, i would say, to the opposition. he said that the part of the november 22 decree in which he basically gives himself any power necessary to protect the revolution has been misunderstood and he would be all right with canceling that part of it. and he invited them a dialogue with them -- with him. however the dialogue is to be on saturday which is when voting outside of egypt among expats would start and he insi
. it is the first major action taken by c.e.o. michael corbat since he took over this summer. bank of america rallied 4%, closing at $11 per share. it consistently is one of the movet tiacly traded stocks, and itiwas again today. media reports indicate agfinential banking analyst itmedinerfwhh ey upgraded her opinion of both bank of america and citigroup today. in addition to the sprint and clearwire deal, there was other monday merger news, and speculation driving stock prices.wh first, the speculation: general electric reportedly is close to lla 4 n $lliodeal for italian aerospace group avio. ording to the wall street journal a deal could be announced thursday. orders for new airplane engines have increased with g.e. looking to buy parts supplies like avio. shares of g.e. gained 1.4% on heavier than usual volume. a.i.g. shares jumped 3% on reports it could sell its stake in the asian life insurer a.i.a. group for as much as $6.5 billion. a.i.g. still owns about a third of the asian company. canada's third largest life insurer, sun life does have a deal to sell its u.s. annuity business. tha
action in congress, on gun control? >> i think it did change things. whether we will be able to attract enough republicans, republicans even ready to take your economy down so i wouldn't be surprised if they did the same here as they have done to colorado imbibe and wisconsin and dozens of similar massacres. but i do think the country has changed. and i think it's time for people to tell these members who have been imprisoned by the nra to let your member go. >> i wish there was a simple answer. if i really believe that if you ban a certain type of weapon, i don't like to call them assault weapons i'd call them semi automatic rifles. but if i thought that would work, maybe i would be open to it but the fact is we had the ban in effect for ten years, and the particular killings we've seen recently would probably not have been solved even if that bad had been in affect. even the new law would grandfather certain weapons in and i just don't think there is a simple answer. i think this is a complicated problem, guns is part of it. but so is our culture of violence and so is mental illness.
in europe, where right now, europe is quiet and all the action is in the united states, my european friends, policy friends are thrilled that they are not on tv in the united states, that everybody is worried about the fiscal cliff, but europe is still a mess, i mean governor, of the central bank governor mario grogy just kind of said let there be money and that provided liquidity and protection but it hasn't provided the fundamental change in europe. that still, you know, is simmering beneath the surface. i think in the united states, this immediate political shenanigans will get cleaned up, the fiscal cliff, but what i worry is that we won't see a big reform and that is really what i would like to see. we can look across to china also, there is a change in leadership, their economy is stabilized but you talk about bubbles, there is a lot of signs of them in china, and you can say that, you know, it is nothing, they will still grow but there are plenty of concerns around the world. i am hopeful the united states will stabilize housing will continue to strengthenness, employment will stabil
